    Default Which sleeping bag?

    Love to dream have just a sleeping bag for over the swaddle. I got an email about it, I think they might be new. I haven't personally used it, but am looking at getting one for DS

    I used to put the LTD in venta sleeping bag over the LTD swaddle last winter. The wings fit through the arm holes perfectly. It was a winner for us. DS is now arms out and in a 0.5 Tog gro bag but I'm unsure which bag I'm going with for winter yet.

    After reading that a doona is between 10 and 20 tog I looked for the warmest bag I could find and landed on the ergopouch. They have a 3.5 tog winter bag that can zip up into a sleep suit. It also has arms with coverable hand pocket/ mitten thingys. I would put DS in a long sleeved long legged onesie and put the oil heater on v low in our otherwise unheated and poorly insulated house and be confident he was warm enough.

    Our house can go down to 15-16 overnight in winter and I'm looking for something for DS to sleep in.

    DS is currently in a LTD 50/50 1.0 tog without arms. Under it he wears a singlet and long onesie - but it's still around 18 overnight.

    Which brand and tog should I be getting for winter and what should he wear under it?
    definitely recommend Merino Kids sleeping bags. They are wool so they don't have TOGS. They accommodate temp ranging from about 15degree - 27degrees. There are two weight, a standard (17/18degrees to 27/28) and then a heavier one :duvet" which is 15-24/25. I swear by them - have been using them for 2.5yr on both kids and live on the south east coast of Victoria. It can drop from 22degrees to 10degrees overnight here.

    underneath we use merino kids woollen pjs all year around or cotton for summer/flanlette for winter. Super cold nights though I always use woolen

    ChamonixRain Organics are our absolute favourite. I've used on both girls now.

    I know the big w ones aren't TOG rated but does anyone have an idea of what they might be? It's freezing here overnight and we desperately need a heavy sleeping bag but without the $80 price tag many come with
